Came back to “the Head” after a 10 yr hiatus. Have always enjoyed Crane’s tavern. Ate in bar area (did have 7P reservation) with friends. The filet was rock star. Prime rib excellent. Blackened grouper was not bad but overdone and dry. French onion soup...More

Dinner. Place was slammed. Loud. Our reservation got us seated immediately. Only table was in the path for the kitchen. I was only bumped a couple times. This was during the Heritage golf tournament. So lots of loud rude golfers/golf fans. The manager quietly handled...More

Very disappointing. Our waitress was nice...More

We have continued to enjoy eating at this restaurant, especially for the early bird specials from 5-6 PM. Menu usually has Prime Rib on the menu and I had the end cut last evening which was outstanding. A salad and glass of wine are included...More

Most of our group got the prime rib and thought it was good. My wife's filet was excellent as were the sides of escalloped potatoes and cream spinach. The sour dough bread was warm and tasty and my french onion soup was satisfactory. I shouldn't...More
